Don't suppose you've got the pilot issue, "Linux Answers", have you ? That would complete my collection...

Sorry Nigel, unless that was issue #1 I don't think so.

Ah well, it was worth a try. I have issue #1 right through to #68 but I missed Linux Answers.
I guess it'll turn up on ebay sooner or later.

Nigel,

I have an extra copy of Linux Answers buried somewhere in storage. It'll take a while to find it, but if you're interested, email me your full name and address details and I'll fire it off to you once I've found it.

Hi Nigel,

The message never got through at my end for some reason. Could you resend?

Hi Phil,

check your Private Messages after logging on to this forum - if you're using the default orange theme there's an (almost invisible) link in the bar across the top of the page. Unfortunately, it doesn't forward it to your proper email address, so you have to pick it up from this site.

I've sent a second message just in case the first one got lost somewhere in the system.

Nigel,

Oops - I was keeping an eye on my home email account, and was blissfully unaware of the private messages thingie in this forum until your last message. Spot the forum newbie! I've found both messages and have taken note of your details.

No charge for the mag - it's just taking up space. It's been so long since it came out that I honestly can't remember if there was a CD with it, but if there was, I'll also have a spare copy of that somewhere, although it'll be even harder to dig out than the mag (I have all my old stuff stored away in boxes - please bear with me).

To be honest, a CD that old wouldn't contain anything of much use to current Linux users, unless there are some articles or tutorials on it. Open source software is developed at such a rate that I find that much of the cover disk software is out-of-date almost as soon as the mag hits the stands. A good broadband connection for downloading the newest software is much more important (however, if you're on dial-up...). The cover disks are a bonus, but the mags themselves are way more important.

But if you really want it, you can have it (if there was one - I'll find that out when I dig out the magazine). If you're an obsessive completist (like me). you'll definitely have to have it. Very Happy

I'll let you know when I find the mag.

Phil

Hi Phil,

many, many thanks Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

At least let me cover the postage...

Yeah, I'm the obsessive completist type as well... collected the entire set of "Classic Carry On" films/mags, even though less than half of them will ever come out of the DVD cases a second time.

Now all we need is another collector to make dmoc an offer for his collection... Smile

FYI the disk that came with LinuxAnswers has RedHat 6 and Wordperfect 8 and loads of tutorials (he said smuggly looking at his collection) Wink

Well, that answers the question of whether or not Linux Answers had a cover disk. My memory must be going a bit hazy in my old age. Very Happy Very Happy

I also buy another Future Publishing mag - Computer Music - of which I also have a complete collection, with the exception of Issue 76. I'm doing my nut in trying to find a copy of that one complete with cover disk.

Have any of you guys been to www.tuxmagazine.com? It's the first issue of a PDF/online magazine for Linux beginners. Looks good, and is a free download.

Second issue now actually. I think I mentioned it on the old forums. Originally it was to be a print magazine, but they changed their minds, perhaps not enough people bit at the first subscription offer.

This chap/chapette seems to have it, although you'd have to buy an almighty stack of other issues too Smile

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=2245&item=6962359527

If the auction ends with zero bids, it might be worth contacting the seller and seeing if you can buy 76 separately.

(PS: I have two copies of Linux Answers, but I plan to seal one in a concrete bunker under Wales, vacuum wrapped and laid gently on a silk pillow in an iron box)

Rhakios,

Thanks for the info on TUX #2. It must've come out recently, as #1 was still the current issue when I was last there (two or three weeks ago).

I've been following the magazine since way before its publication, and was quite miffed when the print edition was shelved (I'll always prefer print magazines and books to electronic ones), and when Marcel Gagné pulled out of the project (one of the best Linux writers). I would've paid for that one.

Still, a free electronic download PDF mag is not to be dismissed lightly. Must remember to get on www.tuxmagazine.com later this evening to grab #2...

Phil
